When you get to the end of row 14, chain 4, skip a stitch, slip stitch in the next. Do this all the way around twice. On the second time around you'll be slip stitching into the previously skipped stitches.
Then ch 3 and slip stitch onto each stitch post in row 14. Do that all the way around (no skipping this time).
